Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Aveo

  • miles
I bought my Aveo new. At only 6,000 miles the master cylinder failed and 5,000 miles later the brake booster failed and I crashed--the air bags did not deploy. GM would fixed the brake booster but not the damage to my car! at 13,000 miles the brake drums needed to be re-surfaced, the brake rotors needed to be cut, and I had to get new brake pads--again GM would not fix it and made me pay for it. At 16,000 miles the air bag sensor for the passenger failed. At 18,000 miles the gas gauge failed and the shifter got stuck in park, and the cruise control would work on and off. At 20,000 miles the all four tires needed to be replaced. Around this time, gas mileage dipped to about 19-21mpg, but GM couldn't figure out why. At 30,000 miles I had to get new rotors and brake pads--again I had to pay for it even though they are wearing out prematurely. At 35,000 miles the transmission started to shift hard so GM recommended I change the transmission fluid at a cost $450 because the fluid has a special additive that is shipped from Korea! at 44,000 miles the engine died--more like blew up. GM said that it is my fault for letting it run too hot, though I had no warning from any gauges, lights, ect... again I had to fix it even though I had the 100,000 mile warranty. At 48,000 miles the A/C needed to be overhauled--I had to pay for it. At 52,000 miles I hit a deer and again the air bags did not deploy. The insurance company junked it. Absolutely without a doubt in my mind the worst car I have ever owned. GM should be sued for this car. They do not honor the warranty at all. The service departments treated me with disrespect. A couple of dealers refused to even accept my car for repair. The car is very scary to drive and not safe at all. With all the money I spent fixing the car plus my car payment each month, I could have easily purchased a BMW instead. GM is absolutely the worst folks to deal with. Never again will I buy or support anything from GM.

Aveo 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 2,000 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Aveo. When the wipers were used during the winter ice/snow scratched the windshield. In addition, the contact felt that the tires were not adequate for the vehicle. They caused the vehicle to be too close to the ground. The tires provided very little traction during the winter. The tires are the original that was on the vehicle at the time of purchase. The tire brand name, line, size, and dot number were not available. The current mileage on the vehicle was 8,789 and failure mileage was 2,000. Updated 04/11/08 updated 04/11/08
